The Senate passed a bill Thursday that serves as exhibit A into how badly things were going last year at the Oregon Health Authority, requiring the agency to give the coordinated care organizations at least a month to review contracts before the deadline to sign them.
The Legislature is considering a number of bills to improve the operations of the Oregon Health Authority. SB 833 gives CCOs time to review contracts. HB 2950 allows CCOs to assist their members with re-enrollment. SB 7 requires better oversight of new IT projects at the agency.
